This past week I had the pleasure of playing a few concerts in Belgium and The Netherlands with Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society. We performed at the Eastern Daze Festival in Gent, Belgium where I had the pleasure of seeing some amazing sets of music. We had the difficult position of opening up for The Master Musicians of Jajouka lead by Bachir Attar and Pelt. I was incredibly inspired by the entire event, and will be dealing with the memories of that music and experience for years to come. Then we played at the Rose Tanker in North Amsterdam as NIS, as well as a set with John Dikeman and Eric Boeren. It was amazing to hear such diverse musical personalities blending together with such mastery. NO JOKE - the room was filled with love and care from the participants and the audience. We all rode a powerful emotional wave and reached deeply into each others' space. It was incredible!
